In order to study the mechanisms of development of pathological changes in children living in contaminated areas and chronically exposed to radionuclides as a result of exposure through the food chain, was performed thermographic study of endothelium-dependent vascular reactions with occlusive tests. Showed signs of dysfunction, the secretory activity of the endothelium and increased secretion of substances endothelial origin.

Key words: children, radioactively contaminated areas, endothelium-dependent vascular response.
